Ramen Noodle Salad - one of our favorites! The perfect side dish! Napa cabbage, slivered almonds, ramen, & sesame seeds in a delicious dressing!

Don’t know how it happened, but all of us kids on the Luna side end up with the same assignments. I’m always desserts. My little sister always brings cookies. My oldest sister always does a side… Does your family do this? Well, my sister who always brings a side often gets asked to bring today’s recipe for Ramen Noodle Salad.

This salad is a family favorite and is one we’ve making for years. I would have never guessed that Ramen in a salad would be so amazing, but it really is and is very easy to make. We tried to track down where we got the recipe, but we’ve been making it for so long, it was hard to remember. All I know is that it’s delicious, the family loves it, and it’s always gone in no time!!

The BEST Ramen Noodle Salad recipe!

I honestly think I could eat this salad all day long! My only suggestion is that it gets eaten quick. After it’s been sitting out for a few hours the noodles get soft and it’s not as good as when the noodles have a little crunch to them. 🙂

I wish the recipe was there when the picture was there….fro example, I was looking at the tortellini picture & recipe and the picture beneath was the ramen noodle salad, and I had to go look through your site for the recipe,…other then that, it’s very nice…good luck!

    Lil' Luna

    There should be a link to the Ramen Noodle Salad right underneath the picture of the Ramen Noodle Salad that takes you to the recipe. Sorry about that.


Another easy and nice recipe. Thank you Kristyn.

Jane Blackmun

What flavor of ramen do you use?

    Lil' Luna

    Good question! I always use the Chicken. 🙂


      Fantastic yummmmmmmmy!


WOW. This recipe is creative and sounds delicious!


Made this for Easter and it was gone in a flash! So good and easy, I’ve already bought the ingredients to make again!

    Lil' Luna

    YAY!! I love to hear that. It’s definitely a family favorite of ours too and is ALWAYS gone in minutes!


Is Nappa lettuce the same as Nappa cabbage? Does it have to be Nappa lettuce?


I am confused about “napa lettuce” and have never heard of that. I have heard of napa cabbage or Chinese cabbage but never napa lettuce. Google doesn’t find it either but changes it to Napa Cabbage. By any chance is that what you really used, Napa Cabbage or did you use Romaine lettuce?I use Daikon radish noodles cut small or rutabaga noodles cut small to sub for Ramens in all my recipes. Ramens kick my blood sugars too much to eat so I automatically sub for them..

    Lil' Luna

    Yes, it’s Napa Cabbage… just updated the recipe. 😉


      Pssssst… you missed updating lettuce to cabbage in the last step of the recipe. Thought you would like to know. Sounds great. Going to try it this weekend. Thanks.


This looks good but I have a question. Do you break up the ramen noodles on the baking sheet before baking or do you break them up when you are mixing them with the vegetables? I bet this would also taste good with grilled chicken on top.


    Lil' Luna

    We break up the noodles before baking. And you’re right – grilled chicken would be great on top!!


Thanks Kristyn for the nice salad recipes.

    Lil' Luna

    Then you’ll love this! Hope you’ll give it a try!

    Barb Kennedy

    I’m not sure what you do with the noodles, you break them up and then bake them?then put them in the salad, Aren’t they hard?

      Lil' Luna

      Yes, you break them and then bake them 🙂 They give the salad crunch. As it sits in the dressing, they do get softer. Enjoy!


this is a great salad my moms been making this since I was little in now 50 and she’s still making it when ever we go to get to gathers or party’s its always a huge hit and the best part is its fast easy and cheap to make and so good u could eat it daily as a meal just add some chicken its fantastic
